Today A.A.Milne would have been 135 years old! He of course created our Silly old Britsh Bear Winnie the Pooh. I have created this 3D scene in his honour.
Pooh was 90 years old last year but I had just had an op so I couldn't create anything then, so this is a double celebration!
I used a Tando Create Art Room as the base and Tim Holtz Treeline and Pine Tree Dies to fill Ashdown Forest with lovely trees. I covered the trees and the outside of the Art Room in Indigoblu Coarse Texture paste and painted them in various shades of green.
I watercoloured my stamped images of Christopher Robin and Pooh, Piglet and Hunny Pots. I stamped an extra balloon and used some wire to dangle Piglet underneath it, he is having a grand old time! Some glossy accents added to the hunny pots gave them a goooey glossy look.
Many Happy Returns of A.A.Milne's Birthday, thank you for visiting us on this Special Day in Ashdown Forest!
In A.A. Milne's and Pooh's honour I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
Emerald Creek Dares use something new. The lovely Special Day Snip Art from Craft Box is new to me.I was very lucky and was the random winner at Craft Stamper last month and received goodies from Craft Box!
Words to Craft By "If you wanna make the world a better place Take a look at yourself, and then make a change" If everyone could change and be more like Pooh the world would be a better place!

Alice has fallen down the Rabbit Hole and has magically found herself in Winterland!
I created the background with watercolours and I used Indigoblu stamps for Alice and the tree.
I squeezed some glossy accents onto the top of the picture and let it drip down to look like icicles and then shook a generous amount of fine white glitter over the top.
I used glass beads at the bottom of the picture for Alice to stand on, I hope she does not get too cold!
Thank you so much for visiting myself and Alice today we are all mad here ; )
Lost Coast Stamps are holding a wonderful Alice in Winterland challenge, and their Design Team have created some lovely pieces! I would love to enter this into their challenge.

This month the Indigoblu Design Team have been asked to use their favourite Indigoblu stamp, which is of course a difficult choice! As I am a teddy bear fan I just had to pick the famous Aloysius teddy from Brideshead Revisited.I was happy for an excuse to use my new Christmas watercolours to paint the background.More details about how I made this card can be found on the Indigoblu blog.
Aloysius is the most gorgeous bear and there are so many different cards, and gifts you could make with him!He has been in my stamp collection for some time I must bring him out to play more often : )
There is a fun challenge happening at Indigoblu at the moment with the theme of Snow Snow Snow. There are wonderful stamps to be won, so there is nothing to lose.... if you have Aloysius you could sit him in a fluffy pile of icy snow he would love that!
Thank you so much for visiting, I hope to see you again soon.
I would like to enter Aloysius into the following challenges

My year with The Mixed Media Mojo Design Team has concluded, and this is my final project.I used the White Rabbit from Alice for my first project, so I thought I would use him again for my final project.
When dry I coloured the Rose blue, and adhered Alice and the White Rabbit onto the book page.
Play along with Mixed Media Mojo Challenge this month the theme is New and the twist is Clocks. There is a whole new Design Team so be sure to pay them a visit.
Thank you for visiting, may you enjoy every day of the new year.

I made a much smaller bauble than this one for The Craft Stamper Christmas Decoration Art Call, and I was so lucky to have it selected for publication. So I thought why not make a larger and different one to see in 2017! I made this especially for Indigoblu, and you can see lots of other wonderful projects by the Indigoblu International Design Team here.
I found a box of inexpensive baubles in Hobbycraft which separated in half. Which are just perfect for this project.
I began by stamping the dog from the Indigoblu Clumber Park Stamp set, and fussy cut him. Being sure to leave tabs under his feet as these will be pushed into the snow later.
I die cut 2017 from Shrink Plastic and shrunk it with a heat gun, but this can also be done in an oven.
I mixed texture paste and Unicorn sparkles together and spooned it into each side of the bauble. I had gathered some thyme from the garden and used this as winter trees,
I stood the dog into the back half of the bauble a long with some thyme.
I hung the 2017 onto the trees branches, and added a dab of glue to help keep them in place.
I stood the New Years tree into the snow in the front half of the bauble. When both sides were dry I pushed them together, and hung it with a white ribbon.
Thank you so much for visiting me today : )

On the Morning of Christmas Eve some very special deers gather around the Wishing Tree. This tree is the tallest one in the forest, and it is covered in twinkling stars. The deers know how very lucky they are, as they have magical abilities which bring joy to so many all over the world. So on this special morning they gather around their tree to give heartfelt thanks, and they each close their eyes tightly and make a special wish.......
You can find all the details about how I created this Wishing Tree on the Indigoblu Blog.
May all your Christmas Wishes come true xxx

I die cut a mug template and decorated it with stamps from the Indigoblu Steampunkesque Stamp set. I added some colour to the lady with Gelatos . To match the tray I added some stars as before, but using blue instead of white.i assembled the mug and adhered it onto the tray and added an all important Toffee Apple.

The main image is by Crafty Individuals, I chose this stamp after I was luckily chosen as winner in one of their challenges.
I stamped and water coloured the images. I fussy cut them out and detached the umbrella from the children. I made a snowy background with Watercolours and adhered the children to the texture paste and glitter snow. I used foam pads to hold the umbrella in place to gave it some depth. The Let it Snow stamp is from IndigoBlu's stamp set Sparkle and Glisten
Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope to see you again soon.
